Bengaluru, May 19, 2022: Royal Challengers Bangalore fans on Thursday scripted a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® feat for completing most runs between the wickets in an hour at #12thManTakeover, organised by Wings Events and powered by sportswear giant PUMA at Jayamahal Palace in Bengaluru.

A huge group of 187 RCB fans came together to establish a new official record as they completed 823 runs between the wickets on a 22-yard cricket pitch set up at the venue.


Royal Challengers Bangalore were the first T20 team to be placed in the Top-10 list of the most popular teams in the world on social media. RCB and its official kit partner PUMA have consistently focused on creating curated experiences for fans. This time, they have taken it to the next level and created a world record in the presence of the top Indian sports personalities—Dutee Chand and Rupinder Pal Singh.
